    I was thinking of making an app based around free running, like, there would be two game play modes:

    Free run
    Challenge mode

    In free run mode you will be given a city just to run about climb walls and stuff
    In challenge mode you will be given tasks, like races where you have to get from A to B before your opponent, Time trial mode where you have to get from A to B in a certain time, and trick mode where you get rated on what tricks you do.

    Controls:

    D-pad for basic controls
    tap to jump, double tap to jump n flip
    double tap near a wall for a wall run, then swipe to pull up and swipe down to backflip off teh wall
    jump then swipe away from a wall to wall push
    run to a ledge and swipe down to lower yourself, swipe down again to drop
    run and jump to jump travelling forwards, guy will auto roll

    you will also have skills to train up in free play to get better in challenge mode like:

    Jump, how far you can drop
    Run, how fast you go
    Wall, what you can do on a wall:
    more steps for the run
    Pull, how fast you pull up onto a ledge

    Ill add more when i think of it.

    Obviously im not going to be able to do this alone, ill need more coders and designers and im happy to split whatever we earn to get more help.

    seems like a sweet game but very VERY challenging. you plan on making a open world in 3d right. the concept is great put I'm not sure how well the idevices will handle it. it will also take like 6 months unless you get a whole team of people to help.

    So you're gonna need a 3D engine, right? That's gonna be tough.
